Fifty Motets And Anthems For Mixed: Mixed Choir

Book Only | Mixed Choir
Editor Lionel Pike
Publisher Novello and Co Ltd.
Instrumentation SATB and Piano

Tudor and Stuart monarchs reigned during a period of political and ecclesiastical turmoil, out of which occurred profound developments in musical style.

Tudor Anthems, (the term loosely applied to cover the years 1520 to 1640) anthologises some of the finest English musical works of that era. It includes sacred works of various lengths and standards of difficulty for mixed voice choir, accompanied and unaccompanied, by an array of composers, including Byrd, Dering, Gibbons, Morley, Mundy, Parsons, Philips, Smith, Taverner and Tomkins.

A comprehensive collection and indispensable resource for any choir's library, prepared in an easily understood performing edition by Lionel Pike.

'This is an excellent book. It offers variety, the familiar and the less so, all levels of difficulty, and excellent value. Choirs who invest in a set could cover this aspect of their repertoire for years to come.'

Andrew Gant (Choir & Organ - March/April 2011)

'A new Tudor anthem anthology will inevitably invite comparison with the popular Oxford Book of Tudor Anthems, but Lionel Pike's collection largely avoids overlap with the OUP book, and its contents certainly do not disappoint.'

Matthew O'Donovan (Early Music Today - March/May 2011)

'For many choirs and choral societies the Oxford Book of Tudor Anthems has been a standard source for this wonderful repertoire since it was first published in 1978. This new edition from Novello is now a serious competitor (why have we had to wait so long!). At almost the same price as the OUP volume and with 50 anthems (OUP had 34), this anthology is remarkable value for money. Before considering the contents, it is worth mentioning its weight. My choir complains at holding the New Church Anthem Book and this is the same weight as the NCAB paperback (i.e. over a kilogram) and almost A4 in size. Lionel Pike,
